    Multiplayer Host Options

    1. I think their name is codemasters not code?.... oh, wait I get it. Very good. 2. Majority vs minority, that is how democracy works. And to refer to your previous point- 'give the commuinty ( the people that line your pockets ) what they want,' it looks as though they have listened to the people that line their pockets, as you so eloquently put, the commuinty, i.e. majority... 3. Thank you. Have a good day, too. 🙂
  2. Are you on PS4? FYI for anyone who is and having problems since last night- PSN has had issues with their service dropping out, it kicked me out last night and I wasn't able to sign back in until very late last night. This happened at exactly the same time as I lost connection with Racenet, so I would surmise that it is a Sony issue. Sony are aware and are fixing the issue, but it looks as though there have been reports of this since the 9th, and it has been affecting different accounts at different times for various lengths of time. If, when you try to sign in to PSN, you see error code WS-37403-7, then this is what it is. The curious part is that your PS4 may still show as connected to PSN without actually being connected, so it may appear like it is not the case. Just an FYI.
  3. I found a little bug last night. During the service stage if you click into any of the menu options, such as Tune or Tyres, the background noise mutes. You can still hear clicks as you cycle through the menu options but the background sound does not restore until you enter the stage. This happens every service stage. Not sure if this has been reported already. Cheers,

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Roadbook - June 7, 2019

    Woah, I just read that the difficulty upwards from pro on career would be made more even a fair.... please don't say that this will make master easier?? I love the fact that I only win every now and then and that I have to fight. Please say that this change in difficulty is just to make the curve upward from pro less steep by making elite a little harder??
  5. Yeah, good point. I had not really considered the multiplayer aspect.
  6. All, I have had an idea and I am wonder what others might think of it. What if you could level up your crew to avoid making servicing mistakes? Think of this: it could impact your rally and add a new element to the sim rally... a mechanic has an issue at the service stage- so you drop a few minutes and over run your allotted time, incurring penalties. You increase the likehood of a mistake, during service by your crew, by choosing so much to fix during that service that your allotted time was close to expiring anyway. This new element could happen to anyone and any AI just to make it feel more dynamic and true to life, as well providing more positive rewards into levelling up your staff. Make sense? Let me know what you think, I would appreciate it. Cheers,

    I find 3 right usually means that I am about to hit something rather hard.

    when buying new cars...

    You might love the car and have fantastic setups for it. So when an event rolls around hat requires the use of said car, but you are using it in a career championship so it is not available to use in the event, it would be handy to have a spare.... I have done just this with the 208, fulvia and a smattering of others. Plus, growing up with Pokemon, I have an inexplicable urge to 'catch' them all. And play gameboy- but that's irrelevant to this matter.

    I see this 'Notice me Senpai' saying all the time... where is it from?
  12. I am writing this fully aware that this thread could be taken as an exercise in inserting ones nose into unspeakable places, but I am hoping most of you will recognise the sincerity with which it is written and the underlying causes that has brought this thread into existence. I want to extend my thanks to the entire codemasters team for all the work that they do for us, day in and day out. Their job is not a 9-5 job purely for the purpose of earning a wage, no. Their job is born from a desire to do something that they are passionate about, that they care about and that they strive to perfect 24/7. To work in gaming is the dream for many of us within this community, but I have been reading alot of comments on social media lately, stating that this once glorious dream has turned into a nightmare of abuse, anger and even threats for alot of those that work within the industry- none more so than the community managers. I am a member of quite a few gaming communities and I must say that this one is one of the better ones. I am not sure if that has something to do with the types of games that codemaster put out, being aimed at a more mature audience, or just the type of people that this community draws, but I think we can all be glad that most of us here know how to show respect and treat people with dignity. So with all this in mind I want to invite people to write in this thread, commenting with what they are thankful for, to highlight those who should be praised and to have a thread that is a fully and sincerely positive one; and so, I will start. Codemasters, Thank you for the Dirt Rally and Formula one games- I have spent countless hours enjoying them and they serve to offer me a little respite from the grind that is daily life. Without these games I think I would have surrender to insanity by now. And thank you to the community managers for your endless patience... that cannot be stressed enough. The whole team is doing a cracking job.

    WE NEED A RE-LAUNCH - let's brainstorm!

    If that is the rating that someone gave the game based upon their opinion of the game, and after playing the game, then that opinion is valid. I disagree with any opinion with a rating as low as those you mentioned, and I would personally rate DR2 at 7 or 8, but what I am trying to say is that objecting to an argument which resorted to name calling is not a bad thing. I, in fact, would encourage that sort of objection. Obviously what you said was out of frustration and I very much doubt was aimed at anyone in particular other than the generic 'they'. Maybe I shouldn't have stuck my nose in here, but I have seen many post by both you and ShodanCat as you are both very active community members with, obviously, deepset passions. It would be a shame for the community to lose one or other of you, I think.

    He might have been expressing his feelings towards name calling rather than disagreeing with people voicing their criticisms, to which I agree. I love DR2 and find myself frustrated with the constant bashing, but some of the points raised during said bashings are quite correct. Nevertheless, those I disagree with I would not belittle. I suspect this is the basis of his response.

    You can count me in @SgtBleachboy. Those games (As well as TOCA2 with the green laguna and the primera) were the games of my upbringing. Menu, Leslie, Plato... ah the memories.
